Sadayatana

John Tocher surveys the free music landscape for new and old releases encompassing the realms of avant garde, experimental, electronic, musique concréte, industrial, dada-ist music. A transplant from the Los Angeles area, he now makes his home in southeast Texas near the border with Louisiana --deep in swamp country, where the ambiance is enhanced by cicadas and the occasional hurricane.

To finally know that you didn't have to hold on so tight. To realize that all your life--you know, all your love, all your hate, all your memories, all your pain--it was all the same thing. It was all the same dream, a dream that you had inside a locked room, a dream about being a person. And like a lot of dreams, there's a monster at the end of it. - Rust Cohle, True Detective start artist title 00:00 Joe Frawley Nymphlight, for Joseph Cornell 05:34 Arctica Annuminas (Phase 1) 16:15 Palancar...

If they come upon one who still has not seen it and they speak to him of fire, he does not know what they mean. So they, in turn, fall back upon telling him what fire is like. 'As they do so, they know from their own experience that what they are telling him is not the truth, but only a part of it. They know that this man will never know reality from their words, though all the words in the world are theirs to use. He must look upon the fire, smell of it, warm his hands by it, stare into its...

There are experiences that most of us are hesitant to speak about, because they do not conform to everyday reality and defy rational explanation. These are not particular external occurrences, but rather events of our inner lives, which are generally dismissed as figments of the imagination and barred from our memory. Suddenly, the familiar view of our surroundings is transformed in a strange, delightful, or alarming way: it appears to us in a new light, takes on a special meaning. Such an...

He remembered the top, the sudden leveling of the hill, when the climb ceased and the other part of it began. How many times had he done this? The several times blurred; future and past blurred; what he had already experienced and what he would eventually experience blended so that nothing remained but the moment, the standing still and resting during which he rubbed the cut on his arm which the stone had left. God, he thought in weariness. In what way is this fair? Why am I up here alone like...

A prison taint was on everything there. The imprisoned air, the imprisoned light, the imprisoned damps, the imprisoned men, were all deteriorated by confinement. As the captive men were faded and haggard, so the iron was rusty, the stone was slimy, the wood was rotten, the air was faint, the light was dim. Like a well, like a vault, like a tomb, the prison had no knowledge of the brightness outside; and would have kept its polluted atmosphere intact, in one of the spice islands of the Indian...

A lot of people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch of unconnected incidents and things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice of coincidence that lays on top of everything. Give you an example, show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate of shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, "plate," or "shrimp," or "plate of shrimp" out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of...

...like knight and maiden meeting to exchange vows amongst haunted ruins . The starlight was good enough for that story, a light so faint and remote that it cannot resolve shadows into shapes, and show the other shore of a stream. I did look upon the stream that night and from the very place; it rolled silent and as black as Styx: the next day I went away, but I am not likely to forget what it was she wanted to be saved from when she entreated him to leave her while there was time.

The show starts with the title track from Kirill Platonkin's release " Silence is Important ". Kirill said: "...the latest one (Silence Is Important) includes some experiments with throat singing...". Experiment? Success!

Music by Disturbed Earth , Pixyblink , Mystified and C.P. McDill (aka Drone Wallah ) make up the bulk of the show. Thanks to Disturbed Earth and Mystified for providing the music. Mystified sent me 10 samples that he called BoneGen. He said I could play them in any order I liked in lieu of playing live. I opted to choose the order based on Tarot Cards and the I Ching. Thanks to Altocumulous and Michael Corbett for helping select the order. Field recordings used taken from field recordings...

Playing a lot of smaller tracks makes for a longer time editing the resulting playlist, makes for a later night getting the podcast ready before bed. Remind of this next week as I'm doing my show... I'm thinking of using this Flores Funebres track "Depressive Personality Disorder" as kind of a theme song. I suppose I should email and ask the artist if it's ok. Nice short evocative track. Very cinematic. This week I'm struck again by the quality of releases on the ambientaria netlabel....

This was a fun show. One of my best ones I think. Straight dark ambient with some noise and soundscapes. Couple tracks from Mystified's as yet unreleased "Drifting". Actually it was released in 2007 for sale on recycled cassettes , but coming out again soon on Buddhist on Fire as CC music. Backyard Ghost again. Played these tracks on " Calm, Happy Whispers ", and listening to it later, it felt like I needed a seatbelt. Backyard Ghost rocks (in an ambient way of course...)...

Starting with a Bach mashup by Cine Victoria & Muniagurria. It sounds like a bunch of audio gear in an old theater all playing various Bach tunes at the same time. This mixes into some Bach I stretched out myself. An experimental track off Joe Frawley's soundcloud page. Thank you Joe. Very nice. Looking forward to the eventual release.

Starting with an hour long piece by Palancar that reminds me of Eno's bell studies and experiments I did inspired by same. Most of the rest of the show is devoted to dark ambient releases from the dna-productions netlabel. And finishing with a game of tag between To Repel Ghosts and Nagual Art --this is as christmas-y as I will be getting. * Palancar: Singularity * DJ Speaks Epsilon Eridani: Lamentos Lejanos * Epsilon Eridani: Falling Asleep * Epsilon Eridani: Unknown Message Received From A...

Couple cool tracks from the new Mayfairgrin release "This Delicate Confusion" on Webbed Hand Records . The rest of it is like a wacky electronica thing (wacky good!) The drumming on that "Sleep For Now" track reminds me of Peter Gabriel's "Last Temptation of Christ" soundtrack. The rest is as you see below... except I got to play another unreleased track from Magnetic Wind's upcoming release "La Petite Morte": "L'enfant fille (Baby Girl)". Very...

Another mashup of one of Mystified's drone tunes. This time his soda bottle drone is mixed with an old bagpipe 78. So nice of him to let me abuse his music in this way. It's fun! Oh man... Fabián Ramírez played live from Mexico City --in his dark ambient incarnation Obscure Visions. Later in the week I stitched in a flac recording of his set that he provided me. Maximum fidelity. Sounds great. This set will be released later on my new Netlabel Buddhist on Fire . Nothing there now but some...

Earlier in the week I emailed Gastón Arévalo asking him to release his live version of his Marea release as Creative Commons music --so I could play it on my show. Yay! He did, so that's how I started this week. The rest of the show is a mix of tracks from the Dark Winter and eg0cide netlabels. Both labels are kind enough to release all their tracks as Creative Commons share and share alike. Allowing me to remix and adapt, provided that attribution is provided. Thank you Dark Winter and...

Seque mixing Gaston Arevalo’s release “Marea” into a couple tracks by Russian emusician Slow and then into a long Saluki Regicide track. The second of three by Saluki Regicide in the webbed hand rain series. I follow up with a few odd tracks and some recent releases from Dark Winter netlabel. One of which causes some moaning (in the chatroom) about the moaning in the song. All in a day’s work… * Gaston Arevalo: Marea * Gaston Arevalo: Hielo Norte * Gaston Arevalo: Latitud * Gaston...

Fun show tonight. Played mostly stuff by C.P. Mcdill who was kind enough to allow me to mix his music. C.P. McDill is the mastermind behind Webbed Hand Records and has several projects/names he goes under. Among them: Saluki Regicide, Djinnestan, Drone Wallah, Tree Helicopter, and Akashic Crow's Nest. Webbed Hand Records gets a lot of play on Sadayatana. Very happy to do a show featuring so much of C.P. McDill's music. Got to play a few other things. A couple tracks from the new The Implicit...

Also a couple tracks from the new release from Elias Moreno . I took the liberty of mixing (briefly) some H.P. Lovecraft over the top of one track. Since we had been talking about Lovecraft earlier in the chatroom --and Elias Moreno was kind enough to release his music CC share-a-like. Very nice.

New releases from Earth Mantra , Webbed Hand Records , Senile Dementia Productions and Kopp netlabels. A mostly russian flavored show. What can I say... so much good dark ambient music is from Russia. I downloaded [again...] the entire catalog from Senile Dementia Productions . And I have to say... this was not fun. It was track by track one at at time. I don't understand why they don't make their music available at archive.org. But I was pleased to see they are now sharing the music clearly...

Starting with a mashup of a new track by Mystified: Satyr's Drone. I paired it with a homemade 78 I found on archive.org. I think they made it for their loved ones in the war. It's cute but also sounds like the Satyr's of Mystified's track so I went with it. Especially all the laughing. Then we had a live (with one overdub) performance by Muied Lumens. A track he prepared specially for this show. I had listened to it a couple times in the car --but really didn't get into until I listened to it...

Wow. Double wow. Nice live set by Dan Minoza, but then there were a few glitches. I think maybe streaming from Philly to Texas at 320kbps was not a good idea. What can I say, it worked when we were testing it. We'll have to do more tests later. I like this live stuff. I hope there will be more... Anyway on to the other wow --Dan was kind enough to send me his recording of his live set. So I dropped it into the podcast on top of the glitched version.

Nice to have Jason Sloan playing live. Great set. Had some technical difficulties with the mp3 tags.

Well the big mp3 didn't play for more than a second for some reason. And I didn't notice for a while.

This is an impromptu show from this past Wednesday night. It was more of an experimental, just for fun testing type deal, not really meant to be podcast. But then disaster struck --my computer died.
